Summary:

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Tennessee State University, College of Engineering, received approximately $500,000 funding between 2000 - 2004 from the DOD Small & Disadvantage Business office, administered through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  TSU partnered with the US Geological Survey (DOI) to develop a numerical model that could predict and quantify biodegradation of contaminants in karst aquifers (limestone with water-filled caves and conduits). They conducted their field studies at Ft. Campbell, KY where jet fuel has contaminated the groundwater.

Currently the faculty conducts research in the following areas:

  • Bioremediation
  • Numerical model to predict contaminant movement through karst conduits:Phytoremediation
  • Pathogens in streams
  • Biological and chemical process in karst aquifers
